Benefit event for the Fondation du Barreau du Québec
May 2, 2008


May 2, 2008 – Raymond Chrétien, partner and strategic advisor, will be participating as event speaker in the 22nd annual benefit event for the Fondation du Barreau du Québec on May 22, 2008 in Montréal. With his experience as Canada's ambassador to the United States, he will be analyzing, in particular, the repercussions that the outcome of the U.S. presidential elections could have on Canada. The event will be especially interesting since Mr. Chrétien is personally acquainted with two of the three presidential candidates.

This prestigious event draws between 500 and 600 lawyers and guests every year. Past speakers at the event include Jule Deschênes, Yves Fortier, Gisèle Halimi and David Suzuki. The proceeds from this evening will go to supporting legal research projects for both the legal community and the public at large.

Raymond Chrétien's speech is scheduled to start at 6:00 p.m. at the Mount Royal Centre and will be followed by a buffet reception.
